An index card on a white table. On the right, the information detailed in this post is handwritten in black ink.

On the left, 5 samples are stapled to the card. The cotton fabric sample is a medium grey and the linen fabric sample is the same. The BFL Tweed yarn is a dark brown so dark is it nearly black. The cotton yarn sample is the same grey as the fabric samples. The bamboo yarn is mislabeled as linen and is a light silvery color.
